Preface 


In the whole of the Animal Kingdom over 300 000 genus-group names have been proposed and of these nearly 
10% have been applied to moths and butterflies. The 25 000 genus-group names of moths have now been catalogued 
in the volumes cited below. An index and a supplement of additions and amendments to these six volumes of 
the generic names of the moths and also to “The Generic Names of the Butterflies and their Type-species” by 
Hemming, F., 1967, Bull. Br. Mus. Nat. Hist. (Ent.) Suppl. 9: 509 pp., is in preparation.

GENERIC NAMES OF THE MOTHS OF THE WORLD

Synopsis 

The 5750 genus-group names of the Microlepidoptera are listed alphabetically with their type-species and original 
bibliographic references. The means of Fixation of each type-species is given together with the relevant reference. 
A list of 390 available family-group names and their original bibliographic references is included. 


Introduction 

The first and only comprehensive catalogue of genus-group names of the Microlepidoptera was compiled by 
T. Bainbrigge Fletcher, Imperial Entomologist to the Government of India, and was published in 1929 as “A 
List of the Generic Names used for Microlepidoptera” in the Memoirs of the Department of Agriculture in India 
(Entomological Series) 11: pages i-ix, 1-244. This work, long since out of print, covered the 171 years from 
1758 to 1929 and contained approximately 3300 genus-group names. Over the past 60 years to the end of 1988 
this figure has increased to 5750 available genus-group names included in this present catalogue. 

The co-author of the present catalogue, D.S. Fletcher, is not related to T.B. Fletcher. 

The aim of this catalogue is closely similar to that defined in the first volume of Generic Names of Moths 
of the World and followed in volumes 2, 3 and 4. Following a change of editor the scope and style in volume 
5 and in the present volume have been altered in the following respects: 

(a) subjective synonymy of genus-group names has been excluded except in some cases of junior homonyms 
that have no objective replacement names; 

(b) objective replacement names have not been established for junior homonyms having no replacement names; 

(c) type-locality and type-specimen information have been excluded; 

(d) senior subjective synonyms of type-species have not been cited; 

(e) entries have been treated in alphabetical order and cross-referenced to objective synonyms and incorrect 
spellings. 

The present volume contains the genus-group names of the families cited in the Preface under volume 6, from 
1758 up to and including all the relevant names contained in the Zoological Record volume 125 (section 13D, 
Lepidoptera) published in December 1989. 

Each nomenclaturally available genus-group name has been objectively defined by linking it with its valid type- 
species designation determined according to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (Edition 3) publish- 
ed in 1985. Invalid and incorrect designations of type-species that antedate the valid designation are listed and 
the reasons for their rejection are given. 


Form of Entries 

REFERENCES 

Titles of journals have been abbreviated as in the World List of Scientific Periodicals (Edition 4), 1963-1965, 
and supplements. If the cited journal has not been included in the World List, abbreviations in the style of that 
work have been used. Nouns always start with a capital letter and adjectives usually start with a small letter. 
Abbreviations are followed by a full stop, but contractions are not. 

Titles of books and and other non-serial works have also been abbreviated in the style of the World List, using 
the ‘‘Select List of Abbreviations” published in volume 3 of that work. 

The full titles of journals may be found in the World List or in the List of Serial Publications in the British 
Museum (Natural History) Library (Edition 3), 1980. Most of the titles of books and of other non-serial works 
are in the Catalogue of Books, Manuscripts, Maps and Drawings in the British Museum (Natural History). 

Throughout this catalogue the term Commission refers to the International Commission on Zoological 
Nomenclature and the term Code refers to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (Edition 3), 1985. 

DATES 

Following Recommendation 22A of the Code, dates of publication have been cited in square brackets if they 
have been determined from external evidence and in parentheses if determined from evidence in the volume itself. 
These dates have usually been followed by those printed on the title-page to assist in finding the work in library 
catalogues. 

Dates of publication given in Sherbom’s Index Animalium and in the Catalogue of Books, Manuscripts, Maps 
and Drawings in the British Museum (Natural History) have been adopted, except where bibliographical research 
has shown that changes should be made. 

UNAVAILABLE NAMES 

Unavailable names (names that are not nomenclaturally available under the rules of the Code) are preceded by 
a double dagger (t) and reasons for their rejection are given. 

Names recorded in Neave, Nomenclator zoologicus as “(pro A-us Author, date)” usually lack positive indica- 
tion as to whether the names are misspellings without nomenclatural availability or whether they are emenda- 
tions with nomenclatural availability. All such entries have been checked and the correct status given.

I. W. B. NYE & D. S. FLETCHER 
Homonymy 


Names that have been proposed expressly to replace junior homonyms, and junior objective synonyms that have 
been used for the same purpose, are referred to in this catalogue as objective replacement names. Junior subjec- 
tive synonyms used to replace preoccupied senior synonyms are referred to as subjective replacement names. 

Generic names that are junior homonyms have been linked with their objective synonyms. Several generic 
homonyms have no objective synonyms but it has been possible to place some of these as subjective synonyms 
of other generic names by finding, in each case, a genus whose type-species is considered by authors to be con- 
generic with that of the homonymous genus. There remain some for which no replacement name has been found 
and for these, further taxonomic research is required before replacement names are proposed. 


Misidentified Type-species 

Under the Code (Edn 3) Article 70 it is to be assumed that an author has correctly identified the nominal species 
that he (1) referred to a new genus when he established it, or (2) designated as type-species of a new or established 
genus. 

In this catalogue there are several genera having type-species now known to be based on misidentified specimens. 
Under Article 70 such cases should be referred to the Commission to designate whichever species would promote 
nomenclatural stability. The authors of this catalogue have provisionally chosen type-species that they consider 
will fulfil this objective. 


Alphabetical Catalogue of Family-Group Names 

The following alphabetical list of 390 available family-group names is probably far from complete. It has been 
compiled from works examined while preparing the genus-group name catalogue with additional family-group 
names added from a card index in the Natural History Museum, London, maintained by our colleague Dr J.D. 
Bradley and the late Mr N.D. Riley. 

The present catalogue of Generic Names of Moths of the World has been abbreviated to G.N.M. W. 6. Flet- 
cher 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 1-244, in “A List of the Generic Names used for Microlepidoptera”, 
placed the generic names in families and his work has been used as the basis for the present catalogue. In many 
cases, however, the current placement differs from that of Fletcher and this has been noted below. The authority 
for the transfer has usually been cited under the genus-group name entries of G.N.M. W. 6. 

No attempt has been made to include bibliographic information on the synonymy of the family-group names. 

Family-group names take the authorship and date of their first establishment at any level. They may then be 
used at any other level with changed family-group suffix but retain the original authorship and date: 
e.g. Tortricoidea Latreille, [1803], for the superfamiy; 

Tortricidae Latreille, [1803], for the family; 

Tortricinae Latreille, [1803], for the subfamily; 

Tortricini Latreille, [1803], for the tribe; 

Tortricina Latreille, [1803], for the subtribe. 

In the following list of family-group names the original spelling either of the stem of the name of the type- 
genus or of the family-group suffix of each name has been standardized for the main alphabetic margin entry. 
When this has been done the original spelling has been included after the family-group name reference.

Acknowledgements 

The arrangement of the families used in this catalogue is based mainly but not entirely on that proposed, and 
made freely available to us, by Drs I.F.B. Common and E.S. Nielsen for use in the forthcoming check list of 
the Lepidoptera of Australia. We thank Dr Nielsen for making available to us his typescript of the generic names 
of the Incurvarioidea for incorporation into this catalogue. 

The late Dr J. Kyrki of the University of Oulu, Finland, provided us with information on the Yponomeutidae. 
Our colleague Dr J.D. Bradley encouraged us to make full use of an unpublished card catalogue of family- 
group names of the Microlepidoptera maintained by him. We are additionally grateful for the advice and help 
of our colleagues Dr G.S. Robinson on the Tineidae, Mr K.R.C. Tuck on the Tortricidae and to our librarian, 
Miss P. Gilbert. 

Technical management of this project and the painstaking preparation of the manuscript for computer typesetting 
has been undertaken by Mr Campbell Smith aided by Mr D.T. Goodger, Miss M.A. Tobin and Mr K.R.C. Tuck. 
Our thanks are also extended to Mrs S.H. Mound (n6e Halsey) for her assistance in the preparation of the original 
data. 

We also thank Dr V.O. Becker, Brasilia; Dr D.R. Davis, Washington; the late Dr A. Diakonoff, Leiden; Dr 
J.B. Heppner, Washington; Dr V.I. Kuznetzov, Leningrad; Dr P. Leraut, Paris; Dr J. Minet, Paris; Dr J. 
Razowski, Krakow; and Dr L. Vdri, Pretoria.

Obesoceras Petersen, 1957. 

ABEBAEA Hiibner, [1825] 1816, Verz. bekannter 
Schmett .: 408. YPSO 

Type-species: Phalaena sylvella Linnaeus, 1767, Syst. 
Nat. (Edn 12) 1: 893, by subsequent designation by 
Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 1. 

A junior objective synonym of Ypsolopha Latreille, 
[1796]. 

Abebaea was included in the Plutellidae by Fletcher, 
1929, ibidem 11: 1, as a junior synonym of Ypsolophus

designation by Fernald, 1908, Genera Tortricidae Types: 12, 
53, (but cited as osseana Scopoli). 

When Fernald designated as type-species Phalaena 
osseana Scopoli, 1763, Ent. Carniolica: 238, a nominal 
species not originally included in Ablabia, he also placed 
pratana, a nominal species originally included in Ablabia, 
as a synonym of osseana. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 
69(a)(v), this designation constitutes the fixation of the 
originally included nominal species as the type-species. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: Tortrix 
quadripunctana Haworth, 1811, a nominal species not 
originally included in Ablabia and not linked in synonymy 
with one of the originally included nominal species when 
cited as type-species by Westwood, 1840, Introd. mod.

Type-species: Phalaena lappella Linnaeus sensu Hubner,

Insec ta Suecica (7): 95], by subsequent designation by 
Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 2 (but 
cited as “lapella, Hb.”). 

The type-species was included by Hubner as “ Acedes 
Lapella Linn. Syst. Phal.378. Hiibn. Tin. 252.” i.e., 
Phalaena lappella Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 
537, as illustrated by Hubner, [1799], Samml. eur. Schmett. 
8: pi. 37 fig.252. Petersen, 1957, Beitr. Ent. 7: 156, treated 
“ Tinea lapella Hubner” as a synonym of T. trinotella 
Thunberg. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will ‘‘best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Acedes Hubner, 1825, the 
nominal species actually involved, namely Tinea trinotella 
Thunberg, 1794.

16. 

Acropogona was established as an objective replacement 
name for Palpula Treitschke, 1833, a junior homonym. 

The citation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type-species 
designation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout 
in which Duponchel stated in the same work, 7 (2): 102, 
that the species so cited were the types of genera.

The type-species is a junior primary homonym of Tortrix 
magnana Hiibner, [1813], Samml. eur. Schmett. 7: pi. 36 
Figs 225, 226. Razowski, 1977, Acta zool. cracov. 22: 209, 
cited “ Acropolitis walkeri Obraztsov, 1953 (nom. nov.)” as 
an objective replacement name, but we have been unable to 
find the original reference of this probably manuscript 
name which accordingly should be attributed to Razowski, 
1977. 

Thrincophora Meyrick, 1881, had page precedence over 
Acropolitis Meyrick, 1881, but in a later work Meyrick, 


1910, Proc. Linn. Soc. N.S.W. 35: 171, placed 
Thrincophora as a junior subjective synonym of Acropolitis 
and so acted as first reviser within the meaning of the Code 
(Edn 3), Article 24. Acropolitis should therefore be used as 
the valid name.

AMELIA Hiibner, [1825] 1816, Verz. bekannter Schmett.: 
390. TORT [TORT] 

Type-species: Tortrix rhombana [Denis & Schiffermuller] 
sensu Hiibner, [1825], [ = Tortrix viburnana [Denis & 
Schiffermuller], 1775, Ankiindung syst. Werkes Schmett. 
Wienergegend : 128], by subsequent designation by Fernald, 
1908, Genera Tortricidae Types : 15, 53. 

The type-species was included by Hiibner as “Rhombana 
Schiff. Verz. Tort.D.7. Hiibn. Tort. 173.” and cited by 
Fernald as “ rombana Hb. ( viburnana F.)” i.e. Tortrix 
rhombana as used by Hiibner, 1799, Samml. eur. Schmett. 
7: pi. 27 fig. 173, and by Hiibner, [1825]. These usages were 
misidentifications of Tortrix rhombana [Denis & 
Schiffermuller] , 1775, ibidem: 128. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Amelia Hiibner, [1825], 
the nominal species actually involved, namely Tortrix 
viburnana [Denis & Schiffermuller], 1775. 

If the Commission were to act as suggested then Amelia 
Hiibner, [1825], and Aphelia Hiibner, [1825], would be 
objective synonyms. Both of them were proposed by 
Hiibner on the same page and so the name to be given 
precedence should be determined by the Principle of the 
First Reviser. Due to the usage of Amelia in association 
with either rhombana or viburnana this Principle is difficult 
to apply so the Commission should also be asked to give 
precedence to Aphelia on the basis of its current general 
usage as a valid name in both the Old and New World.

by subsequent designation by Walsingham, 1912, Biologia 
cent. -am. (Zool.) Lepid. -Heterocera 4: 158 (but cited as 
griseana Fabricius; see below). 

When Antaeotricha was established, Zeller included 
walchiana Stoll, and placed in its synonymy griseanum 
Fabricius sensu Zeller, 1839, and “1 Pyralis griseana 
Fabricius”. Becker, 1984, Revta bras. Ent. 28: 134, 171, has 
shown that Pyralis griseana Fabricius, 1794, Ent. Syst. 3 (2): 
265, is a junior subjective synonym of Phalaena walchiana 
Stoll and that griseanum sensu Zeller, 1839 and 1854, were 
correct identifications of griseana Fabricius. When Wals- 
ingham designated as type-species Pyralis griseana Fabricius, 
1794, a nominal species only doubtfully included in An- 
taeotricha, he also on the same line placed “ walchiana Zeller, 
1854” as a synonym of griseana, but “walchiana Zeller, 1854” 
was not a misidentification and should be treated as an in- 
correct authorship of walchiana Cramer, one of the nominal 
species originally included in Antaeotricha.

Apotomis turbidana Hiibner, [1825]. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: Tortrix corticana 
was designated by Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. Insectes 
(Spec. g£n. Ldpid.) 1: 148. In his Introduction to the 
volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval reviewed earlier 
classifications of Lepidoptera and designated up to three 
different type-species for each generic name. In his “Expose 
de notre M^thode”, pages 155-690, no type-species 
designation was made for any of the genera he himself 
used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), the type- 


species designation of an author is eligible for consideration 
if he states that it is the type “ . . . and if it is clear that the 
author accepts it as the type-species”. Boisduval’s type- 
designations, although clearly stated, do not fulfil the last 
requirement and so are unavailable. Even though 
Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to lepidopterists, the 
type-designations contained in it have not been accepted by 
Hemming or by other authors. 

Antithesia was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July], 
Syst. Cat. Br. Insects (2): 172, and by Stephens, 1834, 
Illust. Br. Ent. (Haustellata) 4: 86.

An unavailable name Although defined in a key there

egenana Haworth, 1811, was designated by Boisduval, 
1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g£n. Ldpid.) 1: 148. In the 
Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval 
reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera and 
designated up to three different type-species for each generic 
name. In his “Expose de notre M£thode”, pages 155-690, 
no type-species designation was made for any of the genera 
he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), 
the type-species designation of an author is eligible for 
consideration if he states that it is the type “ . . . and if it 
is clear that the author accepts it as the type-species”. 
Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly stated, do 
not fulfil the last requirement and so are unavailable. Even 
though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to

Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval 
reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera and 
designated up to three different type-species for each generic 
name. In his “Expos6 de notre M6thode”, pages 155-690, 
no type-species designation was made for any of the genera 
he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), 
the type-species designation of an author is eligible for 
consideration if he states that it is the type “. . . and if it 
is clear that the author accepts it as the type-species”. 
Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly stated, do 
not fulfil the last requirement and so are unavailable. Even 
though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to 
lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in it have not

Obraztsov, 1965, Tijdschr. Ent. 108: 383, in his revision 
of Palaearctic Tortricidae has followed earlier authors in 
treating P. solandriana Linnaeus sensu Treitschke, 1829, as 
a misidentification of a species that should have been 
identified as P. uddmanniana Linnaeus. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Aspis Treitschke, the 
nominal species actually involved, namely Phalaena

A junior homonym of Atychia Ochsenheimer, 1808, 
Schmett. Eur. 2: 10, - Lepid., Zygaenidae, Chalcosiinae. 
There is no objective replacement name but S. chimaera is 
congeneric with Pyralis saldonana Fabricius, 1787, the type- 
species of Procerata Berthold, 1827; the latter is thus 
available for use as a subjective replacement name. 

S. chimaera is a junior subjective replacement name of 
Sphinx appendiculata Esper, 1783, Die Schmett. 2 
(Fortsetz.): 227, pl.35 figs 5, 6, a synonymy established by 
Hiibner, 1796, ibidem 2: 11. 

Hiibner omitted the figure of S. chimaera from the 
second edition of plate 1 [1803-1806]. 

Neave, 1939, Nomencl. zool. 1: 354, linked Atychia 
Latreille, 1809, with Bradyptesis Sodoffsky, 1837. This was 
an error as Bradyptesis was established as an objective 
replacement name for Atychia Ochsenheimer, 1808, - 
Lepid., Zygaenidae.

accepted by the International Commission on Zoological

Sattler & Tremewan, 1978, Bull. Br. Mus. nat. Hist.

suggesting that the Commission be asked to designate as the

actually involved, namely Coleophora benanderi Kanerva,

The type-species was proposed in the genus Homosetia 
Clemens, 1863, as “ H .? heteropalpella n.sp.” and at the 
end of the description the generic name Pelates was 
suggested. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 51(c)(ii), “the 
specific name is to be treated as having been published first 
in combination with the previously available generic name 
and then combined with the conditionally proposed generic 
name.”. 

Bathroxena was established as an objective replacement 
name for Pelates Dietz, 1905, a junior homonym.

the Code (Edn 3), Article 23(b), for the suppression of 
Brosis Billberg as it is a senior objective synonym that, to 
the best of our knowledge, has not been used as a valid 
name since it was established over 165 years ago.

Hist. nat. Ldpid. Papillons Fr. 11: 545. pi. 309 fig.3, a 
nominal species not originally included in Bucculatrix, he 
also placed albedinella, a nominal species originally included 
in Bucculatrix, as a junior subjective synonym of boyerella. 
Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), this designation 
constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal

The late J. Kyrki of Finland had informed us of the

Kyrki, 1987, Notul. ent. 67: 56. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Caunaca Wallengren the 
nominal species actually involved, namely Plutella

CHIMABACHE Hiibner, [1825] 1816, Verz. bekannter 
Schmett.: 402. OECO [OECO] 

Type-species: Tinea fagella [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 
1775, Ankiindung syst. Werkes Schmett. Wienergegend: 
135, by subsequent designation by Meyrick, 1922, in 
Wytsman, Genera Insect. 180: 61, but cited as “ fagella 
Fabricius” an incorrect authorship. 

Chimabache is a junior objective synonym of Diumea 
Haworth, 1811. 

See also: \Chimabacche Zeller, 1839. 

CHIMAERA Ochsenheimer, 1808, Schmett. Eur. 2: [2]. 

BRACHODIDAE 

Type-species: Sphinx appendiculata Esper, 1783, Die 
Schmett 2 (Fortsetz.): 227, pi. 35 figs 5, 6, by subsequent 
designation by Blanchard, 1840, in Castelnau, Hist. nat. 
Insectes 3: 474. 

Type-species designation by absolute tautonomy cannot 
be used because the species-group name chimaera was 
included in Chimaera for two separate taxa. Noctua 
chimaera Hiibner, [1808], a junior secondary homonym, 
was replaced by Chimaera pumila Ochsenheimer, 1808, on 
page [3]. Sphinx chimaera Hiibner, 17%, was placed by 
Ochsenheimer, on page 4, as a junior subjective synonym 
of Sphinx appendiculata Esper, 1783. 

Chimaera Ochsenheimer, 1808, is a junior homonym of 
Chimaera Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 236, - 
Pisces. There is no objective replacement name but 
Wemeburg, 1864, Beitrdge Schmettkde 1: 465, synonymized 
S. appendiculata Esper, 1783, and Pyralis saldonana 
Fabricius, 1787, the type-species of Procerata Berthold, 
1827. The latter is thus available for use as a subjective 
replacement name. 

Chimaera Ochsenheimer, 1808, was placed on the 
Official Index of Rejected and Invalid Generic Names in 
Zoology. Name No. 771. 

Chimaera was included in the “Glyphipterygidae” by 
Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 46; it was 
transferred to the Brachodidae by Heppner, 1979, Ent. 
Ber., Amst. 39: 127.

recent genus Chionaema Herrich-Schaffer, 1855, - Lepid., 
Arctiidae, by its authors but was placed provisionally in the 
Oecophoridae. Forbes, 1931, Am. Nat. 65: 479-480, 
tentatively placed Chionaemopsis in the Yponomeutidae.

Soc. r. malacol. Belg. 21: 117, - Mollusca. The objective 
replacement name is Chionellidea Amsel, 1940. 

Chionella Amsel, 1935, was established in the 
Scythrididae; it was transferred to the Symmocidae by 
Sattler, 1973, Bull. Br. Mus. nat. Hist. (Ent.) 28: 183.

An incorrect subsequent spelling of Chionodes Hiibner, 
[1825] XChionoda was cited by Hemming, 1937, Hiibner 2: 
170, and followed by Neave, 1939, Nomencl. zool. 1: 6%, 
as an emendation of Chionodes Hiibner, [1825]; there is, 
however, no evidence that XChionoda was a “demonstrably 
intentional change in the original spelling” as required by 
the Code (Edn 3), Article 33(b). 

CHIONODES Hiibner, [1825] 1816, Verz. bekannter 
Schmett .: 420. GELE 

Type-species: Tinea luctificella Hiibner, [1813], Samml 
eur. Schmett. 8: pl.45 fig.312, by subsequent designation by 
Meyrick, 1925, in Wytsman, Genera Insect. 184: 73 (but 
cited as lugubrella Fabricius). 

When Meyrick designated as type-species Tinea lugubrella 
Fabricius, 1794, Ent. Syst. 3 (2): 299, a nominal species not 
originally included in Chionodes, he also, on page 76, 
placed luctificella, a nominal species originally included in 
Chionodes, as a junior subjective synonym of lugubrella. 
Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), this designation 
constitutes the fixation of the originally included nominal 
species as the type-species.

Unavailable designation of type-species: Choreutis 
scintilulana Hiibner, [1825], a junior subjective synonym of 
Pyralis myllerana Fabricius, 1794, has been adopted by 
some authors as the type-species of Choreutis Hiibner,

Fernald, 1900, Can. Ent. 32: 237. Fernald discussed 
Choreutis in an article, 1900, ibidem 32: 236-245, but made 
no available designation of type-species for the genus. No 
type-species designation earlier than that of Walsingham, 
cited above, has been found. Choreutis was discussed by 
Diakonoff & Heppner, 1980, Ent. Ber., Amst. 40: 196, and 
a new genus, Prochoreutis Diakonoff & Heppner, was

Type-species: Tinea hermannella Fabricius sensu Sattler, 
1973 [= Tinea drureUa Fabricius, 1775, Syst. Ent.: 666], by 
subsequent designation by Sattler, 1973, Bull. Br. Mus. nat. 
Hist. (Ent.) 28: 184. 

The type-species was included by Bruand as 
“ hermannella F.” and cited by Sattler as Tinea hermannella 
Fabricius, 1781, Species Insect. 2: 509. Karsholt & Nielsen, 
1976, Entomologica scand. 7: 245, 246, designated a 
lectotype for T. hermannella Fabricius and stated that the 
name has generally been misidentified and used in the 
Gelechiidae but should have been treated as a junior 
subjective synonym of Phalaena schaefferella Linnaeus, 
1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 541, the type-species of 
Sch ifferm uelleria Hiibner, [1825], in the Oecophoridae. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We agree with Karsholt & Nielsen (loc. cit.) 
that the Commission be asked to designate as the type- 
species of Chrysia Bruand the nominal species actually 
involved, namely Tinea drurella Fabricius, 1775. 

The dates of the parts of Bruand’s work have been 
discussed by Viette, 1977, Bull. mens. Soc. linn. Lyon. 46: 
283-288. 

Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 48, 
incorrectly attributed Chrysia to Milli£re, 1854, Annls Soc. 
ent Fr. 23: 61, who stated “Genre cr££ par M. Bruand”. 
Chrysia Bruand sensu Millifere, 1854, was included in the 
Oecophoridae by Fletcher, 1929; Chrysia Bruand was 
transferred to the Gelechiidae by Sattler, 1973, ibidem 28: 
184. 

CHRYSITELLA Zeller, 1839, Isis Oken, Leipzig 1839: 
203. ROES 

Type-species: Alucita erxlebella Fabricius, 1787, Mantissa 
Insect 2: 256, by monotypy. 

The type-species was originally included by Zeller as 
erxlebeniella Zeller, an unjustified emendation, with 
erxlebella Fabricius in synonmy. Under the Code (Edn 3), 
Article 67(d), the type-species “is deemed to have been cited 
in its correct original spelling”. Adela chrysitella Treitschke, 
1833, a tautonym of Chrysitella Zeller, was also placed as 
a synonym of erxlebeniella. Under the Code (Edn 3), 
Article 68, fixation of the type-species by monotypy takes 
precedence over fixation by tautonymy.

Insect, rariorum 1: pi. 12 fig. 8, by subsequent designation

The International Commission on Zoological 
Nomenclature, 1986, Bull. zool. Nom. 43 (Opinion 1418): 
325, placed Chrysoclista Stainton on the Official List of 
Generic Names in Zoology. 

Chrysoclista was included in the “Cosmopterygidae” by 
Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 48; it was 
placed in the Blastodacnidae, here included in the

CHR YSOES THIA Hubner, [1825] 1816, Verz. bekannter

Type-species: Tinea zinckenella Hubner, [1813], Samml 
eur. Schmett. 8: pi. 59 figs 401, 402, (as tzinckeella, an 
incorrect original spelling), by subsequent designation by 
Meyrick, 1925, in Wytsman, Genera Insect. 184: 40 (but 
cited as hermannella Fabricius). 

T. zinckenella was originally proposed as “ zinckeela ” but 
was altered in the Verz. bekannter Schmett to zinckenella. 
As there is no doubt that the type-species was named after 
the entomologist Zincken and as the spelling zinckenella has 
been generally used, we follow Sattler, 1973, Bull. Br. Mus. 
nat. Hist. (Ent.) 28: 184, and treat zinckenella as a justified 
emendation. 

When Meyrick designated as type-species Tinea 
hermannella Fabricius, 1781, Species Insect. 2: 509, a 
nominal species not originally included in Chrysoesthia, he 
also, on page 47, placed zinckenella, a nominal species 
originally included in Chrysoesthia as a junior synonym of 
hermannella. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), this 
designation constitutes the fixation of the originally 
included nominal species as the type-species. 

Invalid designation of the type-species: Phalaena roesella 
Linnaeus, 1758, was designated by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. 
Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 184, who accordingly included 
Chrysoesthia in the “Schreckensteiniadae”.

by original designation. 

Petersen, 1957, Beitr. Ent. 7: 596, has stated that the 
type-species as figured by Zagulajev, 1956, was a 
misidentification of a species that should have been 
identified as T. inquinateUa Zeller. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever species will 
“best serve stability and universality of nomenclature”. We 
suggest that the Commission be asked to designate as the 
type-species of Cilicorneola Zagulajev, the nominal species 
actually involved, namely Tinea inquinateUa Zeller, 1852. 

Petersen, 1957, also pointed out that T. inquinateUa was 
the senior subjective synonym of Tinea liguriella Milli£re, 
1879, which is the type-species of Subpentagona Agenjo, 
1952, and of Praetinea Amsel, 1955.

The type-species was included by Stephens as “77.

Stephens, 1834, as a misidentification of a species that 
should have been named P. lappella Linnaeus, 1758. Under 
the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a misidentified 
type-species is to be referred to the Commission to fix as

“ Phalaena (Tortrix) Logiana Lin.” i.e., Phalaena logiana 
Clerck, 1759. The latter, however, denotes a species 
different from pasiuana Hiibner which is the valid name for

Unavailable designations of type-species: (1) Tortrix 
turionana Hiibner, [1813], a nominal species not originally 
included in Coccyx, and not linked in synonymy with one 
of the originally included nominal species when designated 
by Duponchel, 1834, in Godart & Duponchel, Hist. nat. 
Lipid. Papillons Fr. 9: 21. On page 233 (not published until 
1835) Duponchel placed turionana as the valid name for 
resinella sensu Curtis, a misidentification. The nominal 
species Tortrix resinana Hiibner, [1799], originally included 
in Coccyx is, however, treated as a different species on page 
237. 

(2) Tortrix turionana Hiibner, [1813], a nominal species 
not originally included in Coccyx, and not linked in 
synonmy with one of the originally included nominal species 
when designated by Blanchard, 1840, in Castelnau, Hist, 
nat. Anim. articulis (Insectes) 3: 545. 

(3) Pyralis resinana Fabricius, 1775, was designated by 
Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g£n, L£pid.) 1: 
137. In the Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, 
Boisduval reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera 
and designated up to three different type-species for each 
generic name. In his “Expose de notre Mdthode”, pages 
155-690, no type-species designation was made for any of 
the genera he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 
69(a)(iv), the type-species designation of an author is eligible 
for consideration if he states that it is the type ”... and if 
it is clear that the author accepts it as the type-species”. 
Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly stated, do 
not fulfil the last requirement and so are unavailable. Even 
though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to 
lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in it have not 
been accepted by Hemming or by other authors. The 
acceptance of Boisduval’s type-species designation in this 
case would result in Coccyx replacing Petrova Heinrich, 
1923, as the generic name for Phalaena resinella Linnaeus, 
1758; and Cydia (Pseudotomoides Obraztsov, 1959) 
replacing Coccyx as the subgeneric name for Phalana 
strobilella Linnaeus, 1758. 

Invalid designation of type-species: Tortrix piceana 
Hiibner, [1799], was designated by Fernald, 1908, Genera 
Tortricidae Types : 19; either piceana or one of its senior 
subjective synonyms Phalaena tedella Clerck, 1759, or 
Tortrix comitana Denis & Schiffermiiller, 1775, has been 
accepted as the type-species by some authors.

Beitr. naturk. Forsch. SiidwDtl. 26: 103, figs 37-40], by 
original designation. 

The type-species was included by Obraztsov as 
"mauritanica Wlsghm.” i.e., Lozopera mauritanica 
Walsingham, 1898, Entomologist’s mon. Mag. 34: 73. 
Razowski, 1967 stated that Obraztsov had misidentified 
mauritanica and Razowski has named the taxon as Aethes 
amseli pamirana. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 


misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Coecaethes Obraztsov the 
nominal species actually involved, namely Aethes pamirana 
Razowski, 1967. 

Coecaethes was established to denote a subgenus of 
Lozopera Stephens, 1829.

The citation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type-species 
designation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout 
in which Duponchel stated in the same work, 7 (2): 102, 
that the species so cited were the types of genera.

I. W. B. NYE & D. S. FLETCHER 


Unavailable designation of type-species Tinea cuspidella 
[Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775, was designated by 
Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g£n. L6pid.) 1: 
138. In the Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, 
Boisduval reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera 
and designated as many as three different type-species for 
each generic name. In his “Expos6 de notre M&hode”, 
pages 155-690, no type-species designation was made for 
any of the genera he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), 
Article 69(a)(iv), the type-species designation of an author 
is eligible for consideration if he states that it is the type ”. 

. . and if it is clear that the author accepts it as the type- 
species”. Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly 
stated, do not fulfil the last requirement and so are 
unavailable. Even though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well- 
known to lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in 
it have not been accepted by Hemming or by other authors.

Cryptologa and C. nystalea were both attributed by 
Fletcher to Meyrick, as manuscript names. 

Cryptologa Fletcher, 1920, was included in the 
Elachistidae by Fletcher, 1929, ibidem (Ent) 11: 60; its 
junior subjective synonym Cryptologa Meyrick, 1932, was 
established in the “Douglasiadae”; it is transferred to the 
Gracillariidae on the advice of the late J. Kyrki of Finland.

Type-species: Cryptologa nystalea Meyrick, 1932, ibidem 
4: 219, by monotypy. 

A junior homonym of Cryptologa Fletcher, 1920, Mem. 
Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 6: 217, - Lepid., Gracillariidae. 
Although they denote the same zoological taxon, C. 
nystalea Meyrick is not based on the same type-specimen as 
C. nystalea Fletcher, the type-species of Cryptologa 
Fletcher, so C. nystalea Meyrick, 1932 is a junior subjective 
(but not objective) synonym of C. nystalea Fletcher, 1920. 
Thus Cryptologa Fletcher, 1920, is available for use as a 
subjective replacement name.

The citation by Duponchel is available as a type-species 
designation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout 
in which Duponchel stated, in the same work 7(2): 102, that 
the species so cited were the types of genera. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: T. aemulella was 
designated by Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. 
g£n. L6pid.) 1: 149. In the Introduction to the volume, 
pages 1-154, Boisduval reviewed earlier classifications of 
Lepidoptera and designated up to three different type- 
species for each generic name. In his “Expose de notre 
M&hode”, pages 155-690, no type-species designation was 
made for any of the genera he himself used. Under the 
Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), the type-species designation 
of an author is eligible for consideration if he states that it 
is the type “ . . . and if it is clear that the author accepts it 
as the type-species”. Boisduval’s type-designations, 
although clearly stated, do not fulfil the last requirement 
and so are unavailable. Even though Boisduval’s 1836 work 
was well-known to lepidopterists, the type-designations 
contained in it have not been accepted by Hemming or by 
other authors. 

Invalid designation of type-species: Alucita sulphurella 
Fabricius, 1775, was designated by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. 
Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 64, and has been accepted as 
the type-species by some authors.

DEPRESSARIA Haworth, 1811, Lepid. Br .: 505. 

OECO [DEPR] 

Type-species: Phalaena heracliana Linnaeus sensu 
Haworth, 1811 (but included as heraclei Haworth, an 
unjustified emendation) [= Haemilis pastinacella 
Duponchel, 1838, in Godart & Duponchel, Hist. nat. L6pid. 
Papillons Fr. 11: 153], by subsequent designation by Curtis, 
1828, Br. Ent. 5: folio 221 (as X heracleana Fabricius). 

Depressaria heraclei Haworth, 1811, ibidem : 505, was an 
unjustified emendation of Phalaena (Tortrix) heracliana 
Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 532, but included by 
Haworth in Depressaria and designated by Curtis as 
X heracleana Fabricius (first used as Pyralis X heracleana 
Fabricius, 1775, Syst. Ent.: 655) an incorrect subsequent 
spelling. Bradley, 1966, Entomologist’s Gaz. 17: 225, 226, 
designated a lectotype for P. heracliana Linnaeus and 
pointed out that P. heracliana Linnaeus sensu Haworth was 
a misidentification of a species that was later named as 
Haemilis pastinacella Duponchel, 1838. Under the Code 
(Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a misidentified type- 
species is to be referred to the Commission to fix as the 
type-species whichever nominal species will “best serve 
stability and universality of nomenclature”. We suggest that 
the Commission be asked to designate as the type-species 
of Depressaria Haworth the nominal species actually 
involved, namely Haemilis pastinacella Duponchel, 1838.

OECO FOSSIL 

Type-species: Depressarites levipalpella Rebel, 1936,

The Code (Edn 3), Article 68(b)(i), states that the 
formula “gen. n., sp. n.”, or its equivalent, applied before 
1931 to only one of two or more new nominal species 
included in a newly established nominal genus or subgenus, 
is deemed to be an original designation if no other type- 
species was designated. As Depressarites was published after 
1930 and there was no other type-species designated the 


name is technically unavailable. However, it would be 
pedantic and serve no useful purpose to rename this fossil 
taxon so Depressarites Rebel, 1936, is here treated as an 
available name which the Commission would almost 
certainly ratify if asked to do so.

in Ochsenheimer, Schmett. Eur. 8: 218, by subsequent 
designation by Fernald, 1908, Genera Tortricidae Types: 33, 
56. 

The first available designation of type-species (for 
\Dichrorhampha, an incorrect subsequent spelling) was 
made by Desmarest, 1857, in Chenu, Encycl. Hist. nat. 
(Papillons nocturnes): 224, who cited “ politana , W.V.” 
i.e., Tortrix politana [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775, 
Ankiindung syst. Werkes Schmett. Wienergegend : 129. T. 
politana was an originally included nominal species in 
Dichrorampha, but Obraztsov has established 
Dichrorampha gueneeana Obraztsov, 1953, Mitt, munch, 
ent. Ges. 43: 78, fig. 35, to denote the species that Guen6e, 
1845, and other authors have misidentified as T. politana. 
Thus the First and valid designation, by Desmarest, is a 
misidentification and under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), 
such a case is to be referred to the Commission to fix as the 
type-species whichever nominal species will “best serve 
stability and universality of nomenclature”. Ever since 
1908, Fernald’s designation has been accepted and we 
therefore suggest that the Commission be asked to set aside 
the designation by Desmarest, 1857, and so to validate 
plumbagana as the type-species of Dichrorampha.

The type-species was included by Stephens as

Unavailable designation of type-species: P. loeflingiana 
Linnaeus was designated by Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. 
Insectes (Spec. g£n. L6pid.) 1: 149. In the Introduction to 
the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval reviewed earlier 
classifications of Lepidoptera and designated up to three 
different type-species for each generic name. In his “Expose 
de notre Mdthode”, pages 155-690, no type-species 
designation was made for any of the genera he himself 
used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(aXiv), the type- 
species designation of an author is eligible for consideration

if he states that it is the type “ . . . and if it is clear that the 
author accepts it as the type-species”. Boisduval’s type- 
designations, although clearly stated, do not fulfil the last 
requirement and so are unavailable. Even though 
Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to lepidopterists, the 
type-designations contained in it have not been accepted by 
Hemming or by other authors.

and included in the Yponomeutidae by Heppner, 1984,

DITULA Stephens, 1829 [June], Nom. Br. Insects : 46. 

TORT [TORT] 

Type-species: Tortrix angustiorana Haworth, 1811, Lepid 
Br. :429, by subsequent designation by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. 
Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 69. 

Unavailable designations of type-species: (1) Tortrix 
sylvana Hiibner, [1799], was designated by Boisduval, 1836, 
Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g£n. L£pid.) 1: 148. In the 
Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval 
reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera and 
designated up to three different type-species for each generic 
name. In his “Expose de notre M&hode”, pages 155-690, 
no type-species designation was made for any of the genera 
he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), 
the type-species designation of an author is eligible for 
consideration if he states that it is the type “. . . and if it 
is clear that the author accepts it as the type-species”. 
Boisduvai’s type-designations, although clearly stated, do 
not fulfil the last requirement and so are unavailable. Even 
though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to 
lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in it have not 
been accepted by Hemming or by other authors. 

(2) Tortrix profundana [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775, 
a nominal species not originally included in Ditula, and not 
linked in synonmy with one of the originally included 
nominal species when cited by Westwood, 1840. Introd. 
mod. Classif. Insects 2 (Synopsis Genera Br. Insects): 107. 

(3) Phalaena hartmanniana Clerck, 1759, a nominal 
species not originally included in Ditula, and not linked in 
synonmy with one of the originally included nominal species 
when cited by Desmarest, 1857, in Chenu, Encycl. Hist, 
nat. (Papillons nocturnes): 223 (as \harmaniana , an 
incorrect subsequent spelling). 

(4) Tortrix profundana [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775, 
a nominal species not originally included in Ditula, was 
linked in synonmy with Five (not one) of the originally 
included nominal species when cited by Fernald, 1908, 
Genera Tortricidae Types: 22, 57. 

(5) Walsingham, 1913, Biologia cent. -am. (Zool.) Lepid.- 
Heterocera 4: 211, also cited T. profundana, not T. 
angustiorana as stated by Razowski, 1977, Acta zool. 
cracov. 22: 234, under %Diluta, an incorrect subsequent 
spelling. 

Ditula was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July], Syst.

Ent. (Haustellata) 4: 82.

135, by subsequent designation by Duponchel, 1838, in 
Godart & Duponchel, Hist. nat. Ltpid. Papillons Fr. 11: 
10 . 

The type-species was included by Haworth as fagi with 
T. fagella placed in its synonmy. Diumea fagi Haworth, 
1811, ibidem: 501, was therefore an unjustified emendation 
of T. fagella. 

The designation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type- 
species fixation as it is contained in the continuation of a 
layout in which Duponchel stated, in the same work 7 (2): 
102, that the species so cited were the types of genera.

DESIGNATION. 

T. cerasifoliella is currently placed as a junior subjective 
synonym of Phalaena clerkella Linnaeus, 1758, the type- 
species of Lyonetia Hiibner, [1825]. 

Elachista was a Treitschke manuscript name, obtained from 
a copy of Treitschke’s unpublished manuscript (see Kollar, 
1832, ibidem 2: 2), and made nomenclaturally available by 
Kollar before the genus was described and named by 
Treitschke, 1833, in Ochsenheimer, Schmett. Eur. 9 (2): 177. 


In order to conserve the existing usage of Elachista 
Treitschke, 1833, and Elachistidae Bruand, 1850, in their 
universally accepted sense, an application has been 
submitted to the International Commission on Zoological 
Nomenclature by Nielsen & Nye, 1988, Bull. zool. Nom. 45: 
28, asking it to suppress the name Elachista Kollar, 1832, 
for the purposes of both the Principle of Priority and the 
Principle of Homonymy.

Endothenia was established to denote a subgenus of 
Antithesia Stephens, 1829. 

Ko?ak, 1981, Priamus 1: 121, stated that he considered 
that Endothenia is not an available name. We cannot agree 
with his argument as Endothenia is available under the 
Code (Edn 3), Article 10(e), as a name proposed for a 
division of a genus and, in addition, Endothenia contained 


an available species-group name clearly included under it as

subsequent designation by Walsingham & Durrant, 1909, 
Entomologist’s mon. Mag. 45: 51 (but cited as Tinea 
lactella). 

The type-species was included by Hiibner as “ E . 
Betulinella Fabr. Mant. Alu.13. Hiibn. Tin.20. 448.” i.e., 
Alucita betulinella Fabricius, 1787, Mantissa Insect. 2: 255, 
as illustrated by Hiibner, 1796, Samml. eur , Schmett. 8: 
pi. 3 fig. 20, pi. 67 fig.448. 

When Walsingham & Durrant designated as type-species 
Tinea lactella, a nominal species not originally included in 
Endrosis they also placed “betulinella Hb.”, a name 
originally included in Endrosis, as a synonym of lactella. 
Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), as “ betulinella Hb.” 
is a misidentified type-species, the case is to be referred to 
the Commission to fix as the type-species whichever 
nominal species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Endrosis the nominal 
species actually involved, namely Tinea lactella [Denis &

Duponchel, 1838, in Godart & Duponchel, Hist. nat. L4pid. 
Papillons Fr. 11: 23. 

The citation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type-species 
designation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout 
in which Duponchel stated, in the same work 7 (2): 102, 
that the species so cited were the types of genera. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: P. geof/rella was 
designated (as geoffroyella) by Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. 
Insectes (Spec. g^n. L£pid.) 1: 149. In the Introduction to 
the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval reviewed earlier 
classifications of Lepidoptera and designated up to three 
different type-species for each generic name. In his “Expose 
de notre M&hode”, pages 155-690, no type-species 
designation was made for any of the genera he himself 
used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), the type- 
species designation of an author is eligible for consideration 
if he states that it is the type “ . . . and if it is clear that the 
author accepts it as the type-species”. Boisduval’s type- 
designations, although clearly stated, do not fulfil the last 
requirement and so are unavailable. Even though 
Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to lepidopterists, the 
type-designations contained in it have not been accepted by 
Hemming or by other authors. 

Invalid designations of type-species: Pyralis tunbergiana 
Fabricius, 1781, was designated (as thunbergana) by 
Westwood, 1840, Introd. mod. Classif. Insects 2 (Synopsis 
Genera Br. Insects): 110, and Tinea lobelia [Denis & 
Schiffermiiller], 1775, was designated by Fletcher, 1929, 
Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 77. Each has been 
accepted as the type-species by some authors. 

Enicostoma was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July],

The type-species was included by Duponchel as “E. dor- 
sana ”, i.e., Pyralis dorsana Fabricius, 1775, Syst. Ent.: 654. 
Leraut, 1980, Liste syst. syn. Lipid. Fr. Belg. Corse: 98, 
placed “ dorsana sensu Duponchel” as a misidentification 
of jungiella Clerck, originally spelt as t iungiella but altered 
to jungiella in a later part of the same work. The latter spell- 
ing is in general current use and is treated here as a justified 
emendation of an incorrect original spelling. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the Commis- 
sion to fix as the type-species whichever nominal species will 
“best serve stability and universality of nomenclature”. We 
suggest that the Commission be asked to designate as the 
type-species of Ephippiphora the nominal species actually 
involved, namely Phalaena jungiella Clerck, 1759.

designation by Duponchel, 1838, in Godart & Duponchel, 


Hist. nat. L4pid. Papillons Fr. 11: 11. 

The citation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type-species 
designation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout 
in which Duponchel stated, in the same work 7 (2): 102, that 
the species so cited were the types of genera. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: P. avellanella was 
designated by Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g6n. 
L6pid.) 1: 150. In the Introduction to the volume, pages 1- 
154, Boisduval reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera 
and designated up to three different type-species for each 
generic name. In his “Expose de notre M6thode”, pages 
155-690, no type-species designation was made for any of 
the genera he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Arti- 
cle 69(a)(iv), the type-species designation of an author is eligi- 
ble for consideration if he states that it is the type ”... and 
if it is clear that the author accepts it as the type-species”. 
Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly stated, do 
not fulfil the last requirement and so are unavailable. Even 
though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to 
lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in it have not 
been accepted by Hemming or by other authors.

The Code (Edn 3), Article 68(b)(i), states that the formula 
“gen.n., sp.n.”, or its equivalent, applied before 1931 to 
only one of two or more new nominal species included in 
a newly established nominal genus or subgenus, is deemed 
to be an original designation if no other type-species was 
designated. This was the case with Epinomeuta but as it was 
published after 1930 and there was no other type-species 
designated the name is technically unavailable. However, it 
would be pedantic and serve no useful purpose to rename 
this fossil taxon so Epinomeuta Rebel, 1936, is here treated 
as an available name which the Commission would almost 
certainly ratify if asked to do so.

The type-species was included by Hiibner, as “Ethmia 
Pyrausta Pall. Reis. I. Anh. 20”. Sattler, 1976, in Amsel

Pallas sensu Hiibner as a misidentification of a species that 
should have been identified as T. aurifluella Hiibner, 
[1810]. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of 
a misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Ethmia Hiibner the 
nominal species actually involved, namely Tinea aurifluella

Introd. mod. Classif. Insects 2 (Synopsis Genera Br.

T. purpurana Haworth, 1811, is a junior primary 
homonym of Tortrix purpurana Thunberg, 1784, Diss. ent. 
sistens Insecta Suecia (1): 19. Rebel, 1901, in Staudinger & 
Rebel, Cat. Lepid. palaearct. Faunengeb. (2): 106, placed 
Sciaphila rosaceana Schlager, 1847, Ber. lepidopt. Tausch- 
Ver. 1847: 229, as a junior subjective synonym of 
purpurana Haworth. S. rosaceana is thus available for use 
as a subjective replacement name. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: Pyralis sponsana 
Fabricius, 1787, was designated by Boisduval, 1836, Hist, 
nat. Insectes (Spec. g6n. L6pid.) 1: 149. In the Introduction 
to the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval reviewed earlier 
classifications of Lepidoptera and designated up to three dif- 
ferent type-species for each generic name. In his “Expose de 
notre M6thode”, pages 155-690, no type-species designa- 
tion was made for any of the genera he himself used. Under 
the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(aXiv), the type-species designation 
of an author is eligible for consideration if he states that it 
is the type “ . . . and if it is clear that the author accepts it 
as the type-species”. Boisduval’s type-designations, although 
clearly stated, do not fulfil the last requirement and so are 
unavailable. Even though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well- 
known to lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in 


it have not been accepted by Hemming or by other authors. 

A junior homonym of Euchromia Hubner, [1819] 1816, 
Verz. bekannter Schmett.: 121, -Lepid., Ctenuchidae. 
There is no objective replacement name but Bradley, 1972, 
in Kloet & Hincks, Handbks Ident. Br. Insects 11 (2): 33, 
placed Euchromia Stephens as a synonym of Celypha 
Hubner, [1825], and used the latter as a subjective 
replacement name. 

Euchromia was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July], 
Syst. Cat. Br. Insects (2): 183, and again by Stephens, 1834, 
Illust. Br. Ent. (Haustellata) 4: 143.

Hw. (1811) = Olethreutes alhersana Hb. (1822).” T.

emendation of Phalaena rhediella Clerck, 1759, Icon. 
Insect, rariorum 1: pi. 12 fig. 12 (but cited by Haworth as 
“ Phalaena Tinea Rheediella. Lin. Faun. Suec. 1405” an

“Olethreutes alhersana Hb. (1822)” Syst.-alphab. Verz.:

Heydenreich, 1851, referred to Herrich-Schaffer’s non- 
binominal legend to pi. 39 and applied the binomen 
Coleophora parietariella to figure 268, before the relevant 
part of Herrich-Schaffer’s text was published in 1854,

Kirby, 1892, Synonymic Cat. Lepid. Heterocera 1: 504. 

The type-species was included by Walker as Eumetia 
cramerii and designated by Kirby as ”E. layardi”. Moore, 
[1883], treated O. cramerii Westwood sensu Walker, 1855, 
as a misidentification of an unnamed species for which he 
established E. layardii. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We suggest that the Commission be asked 
to designate as the type-species of Eumeta Walker, 1855, 
the nominal species actually involved, namely Eumeta 
layardii Moore, [1883].

Genera Br. Insects): 109. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: T. angustana 
Hiibner was designated by Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. 
Insectes (Spec. g^n. L£pid.) 1: 149. In the Introduction to 
the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval reviewed earlier 
classifications of Lepidoptera and designated up to three 
different type-species for each generic name. In his “Expose 
de notre M^thode”, pages 155-690, no type-species 
designation was made for any of the genera he himself 
used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), the type- 
species designation of an author is eligible for consideration 
if he states that it is the type “ . . . and if it is clear that the 
author accepts it as the type-species”. Boisduval’s type- 
designations, although clearly stated, do not fulfil the last 
requirement and so are unavailable. Even though 
Boisduval’s 1 836 work was well-known to lepidopterists, the 
type-designations contained in it have not been accepted by 
Hemming or by other authors. 

Eupoecilia was again proposed by Stephens, 1829 [July],

ibidem 3: 24, figs 489, 490, by subsequent designation by 
Grote, 1874, Bull. Buffalo Soc. nat. Sci. 2: 152. 

A different species, also from North America but in the 
Pyralidae, had earlier been named in a new genus and 
species on the corresponding page of the previous volume 
and had an almost identical binomen i.e. Eustixia pupula 
Hiibner, 1823, ibidem 2: 24, currently accepted as its valid 
name. Ever since Barnes & McDunnough, 1917, Check List 
Lepid. boreal Am.: 184, the species in the Yponomeutidae 
has been known as Lactura pupula (Hiibner, [1831]). 

If Eustixis Hiibner, [1831], is accepted as a 
nomenclaturally available name then it is senior to and must 
be used instead of Lactura Walker, 1854. If Eustixis 
Hiibner, [1831], is treated as an incorrect subsequent 
spelling of Eustixia Hiibner, 1823, then E. pupula Hiibner, 
[1831], is a primary homonym of Eustixis pupula Hiibner, 
1823, and must not be used as a valid name. To retain 
stability Eustixis should be treated as an unused senior 
synonym (for over 70 years) and a case for its conditional 
supression submitted to the Commission under the Code 
(Edn 3), Article 79(c). 


The late J. Kyrki of Finland had informed us that he 
intended to transfer Eustixis to the Zygaenidae Phaudinae.

Hiibner originally included in Rhyacionia Hiibner,

Syst.Phal.311. Hiibn.Tor.186.” thus showing that Tortrix 
hastana Hiibner, was an incorrect subsequent spelling of 
Phalaena hastiana Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 
532. However, ever since Herrich-Schaffer, 1851, Syst. 
Bearbeitung Schmett. Eur. 4: 149, 206, it has been known 
that Hiibner misidentified hastiana Linnaeus, and Tortrix 
hastana Hiibner has been used to denote a different species 
in a different subfamily. 

To maintain general current usage of T. hastana Hiibner 
and of Rhyacionia Hiibner, [1825], a case should be 
submitted to the Commission asking them to rule (1) that 
Tortrix hastana Hiibner, 1799, be treated as a 
nomenclaturally available name denoting a taxon different 


from that denoted by Phalaena hastiana Linnaeus, 1758;

Kirby, 1892, Synonymic Cat. Lepid. Heterocera 1: 523 (but 
cited for Fumea as casta Pallas). 

Kirby designated casta Pallas for “ Fumea Stephens” but 
Stephens attributed Fumea to Haworth and was using 
Fumea Haworth, 1812, an objective replacement name for 
Fumaria Haworth, 1811. 

When Kirby designated as type-species Phalaena casta 
Pallas, 1767, Nova Acta physico-med. Acad. Caesar. Leop. 
Carol. 3: 437, a nominal species not originally included in 
Fumaria, he also placed nitidella, a nominal species 
originally included in Fumaria, as a junior subjective 
synonym of casta. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(v), 
this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally 
included nominal species as the type-species. 

In addition to using Fumea as a valid name Kirby, 1892, 
ibidem 1: 511, also used Fumaria Haworth, 1811, as a valid 
name for a different taxon and designated as its type-species 
“ Bombyx muscella Fabr.” which was a later usage of Tinea 
muscella [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775, Ankiindung syst. 
Werkes Schmett. Wienergegend: 133. However the true 
muscella does not occur in Britain and Tutt, 1900, Nat. 
Hist. Br. Lepid. 2: 317, considered that the Haworth species 
was probably Phalaena pulla Esper, 1785, which is a junior 
subjective synonym of Tinea plumella [Denis & 
Schiffermiiller], 1775, the type-species of Epichnopterix 
Hiibner, [1825]. The Kirby designation for Fumaria is of a 
misidentified species and is therefore invalid unless ratified 
by the Commission. 

Unavailable designation of type-species: Phalaena pulla 
Esper, 1785, a nominal species not originally included in

Unavailable designation of type-species: Tortrix 
effractana Hiibner, [1799], was designated by Boisduval, 
1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g£n. L6pid.) 1: 149. In the 
Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, Boisduval 
reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera and 
designated up to three different type-species for each generic 
name. In his “Expos6 de notre M&hode”, pages 155-690, 
no type-species designation was made for any of the genera 
he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 69(a)(iv), 
the type-species designation of an author is eligible for 
consideration if he states that it is the type ”... and if it 
is clear that the author accepts it as the type-species”. 
Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly stated, do 
not fulfil the last requirement and so are unavailable. Even 
though Boisduval’s 1836 work was well-known to 
lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in it have not

1829, [= Tortrix lunulana [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775, 
Ankiindung syst. Werkes Schmett. Wienergegend : 127], by 
subsequent designation by Walsingham, 1895, Trans, ent. 
Soc. Lond. 1895: 517. 

The type-species was included by Treitschke as 
“ Dorsana , Hiibn. [fig.]36” and designated by Walsingham 
as “ dorsana , F.” i.e., Pyralis dorsana Fabricius, 1775, Syst. 
Ent.: 654. Karsholt & Nielsen, 1976, Entomologica scand. 
7: 249, designated a lectotype for P. dorsana Fabricius and 
indicated that the name has generally been misidentified and 
used as valid in the genus Cydia Hiibner, [1825], but should 
have been treated as a junior subjective synonym of 
Phalaena petiverella Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (Edn 10) 1: 
540, in the genus Dichrorampha Guen£e, 1845. 

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal 
species will “best serve stability and universality of 
nomenclature”. We agree with Karsholt & Nielsen (loc. cit.) 
that the Commission be asked to designate as the type- 
species of Grapholita the nominal species actually involved, 
namely Tortrix lunulana [Denis & Schiffermiiller], 1775. 

Unavailable designations of type-species: (1) Tortrix 
petrana Hiibner, [1813], a nominal species not originally 
included in Grapholita, and not linked with one of the 
originally included nominal species when designated by 
Duponchel, 1834, in Godaxt & Duponchel, Hist. nat. Lgpid. 
Papillons Fr. 9: 22. 

(2) Phalaena nisella Clerck, 1759 (but cited as “ nisana , 
Linn£e”, an unjustified emendation), a nominal species not 
originally included in Grapholita , and not linked with one 
of the originally included nominal species when designated 
by Desmarest, 1857, in Chenu, Encycl. Hist. nat. (Papillons 
nocturnes): 224. 

(3) Tortrix pupillana Hiibner, [1799], was designated by 
Boisduval, 1836, Hist. nat. Insectes (Spec. g6n. Lipid.) 1: 
137. In the Introduction to the volume, pages 1-154, 
Boisduval reviewed earlier classifications of Lepidoptera 
and designated as many as three different type-species for 
each generic name. In his “Exposi de notre Mithode”, 
pages 155-690, no type-species designation was made for 
any of the genera he himself used. Under the Code (Edn 3), 
Article 69(a)(iv), the type-species designation of an author 
is eligible for consideration if he states that it is the type 
“ . . . and if it is clear that the author accepts it as the type- 
species”. Boisduval’s type-designations, although clearly 
stated, do not fulfil the last requirement and so are 
unavailable. Even though BoisduvaFs 1836 work was well- 
known to lepidopterists, the type-designations contained in 
it have not been accepted by Hemming or by other authors.

Heliopsychidea was established to denote a subgenus of 
Psych idea Rambur, 1866. 

The generic name was published three times on page 203 
as Heliopsychidea, once on page 203 as \Heliopsychida and 
once on page 205 as %Heliopsychidae. Heliopsychidea has 
been adopted in this catalogue as the correct (of a multiple)

made nomenclaturally available as it was published after 
1930 and was not accompanied by the Fixation of a type- 
species as required under the Code (Edn 3), Article 13(b), 
A junior homonym of Heliosteres Hope, 1840,

Under the Code (Edn 3), Article 70(b), the case of a 
misidentified type-species is to be referred to the 
Commission to fix as the type-species whichever nominal
